On Thursday, February 20, Shakhtar will host Benfica in the first match of the 1/16 finals of the Europa League. The match will take place in Kharkov at the USK Metalist stadium. Between themselves, Shakhtar and Benfica played twice, having won once. As for the upcoming match, the bookmakers give little preference to the Ukrainian club.
The Donetsk club scored 50 points and, symbolically, scored 50 goals, of which 15 were on the account of Moraes, who is the best goalscorer in the entire league.
In preparation for the season, the “Moles” held nine matches, losing only in one. In today's match will not be able to play Dodo, who misses the game because of the red card.
All movements on the transfer led to an unexpected recession in the game, which lasts from February 8, when the Eagles lost to Porto (2: 3) in the defining duel of Primera and then tied in the Cup of the country and lost in their last game on their field Braga (0: 1) What happens to the team is not entirely clear, but there are losses in the lineup and today will not go to the field of Andre Almeida, Gabriel, Jardel Vieira and Julian Weigl, who has a red card.
At Shakhtar, all the main performers in the ranks, unlike the guests, do not occupy the “Pitmen’s” motivation. We offer to play a neat bet in favor of the hosts.
Our prediction is the victory of Shakhtar
